Instrument and VFR
Outstanding place to learn to fly.
Kelly is amazing! Talented, friendly, professional, excellent pilot and instructor. She truly cares about each student she teaches and just loves to fly. Her reputation around Tucson is simply amazing and well deserved! I asked several pilots who to get my training from and Kelly was the first name out of everyone s mouth. I find myself wanting to show up early and stay longer with each flight. Though everyone when they first start is looking to solo, I enjoy my time so much with Kelly next to me because I am constantly learning from her. I can not say enough about her in this short review. If you have ever thought about learning to fly, you want to go to Kelly s Aviation.
I took instruction with Kelly from day one all the way up to a few days before the check ride for my VFR private pilot license. She is extraordinarily patient and easy to work with (both with scheduling and instruction). She is very effective and efficient with her lessons. I would highly recommend taking instruction with her if you're looking for a thorough and success-oriented instructor.
In the process of getting my Private Pilot's License I used five different instructors. Two of them I would never recommend even to my enemies, two of them were ok, only Kelly was awesome. By far the best flight instructor I have ever had. Her teaching style is calm and patient. She is always willing to work her butt off for her students to ensure they achieve their goals. Don't go anywhere else in Tucson, this is the real deal!
Kelly Stites is a top notch flight instructor. She was always very patient with me, explained things very clearly, and worked with my schedule. All of her airplanes are kept in the best possible condition, which gave me a lot of peace of mind when I took my first solo. In fact, Kelly stood out on the runway during my first solo just to cheer me on! I have my private license- next step with Kelly is my instrument rating!
